Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay 2015
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities. During the twelve months of barrel aging, we regularly stirred the "lees" in barrel, which imparts an elegant fullness and creamy texture on the palate. In the glass, the wine is both creamy and crisp, with flavors of golden delicious apple, pear, Meyer lemon, baking spices with a hint of minerality on the long finish. Food pairings: Enjoy over the next one to three years with a gourmet cheese plate, creamy vegetable pasta or grilled halibut.
